Careful, fellows!The “bachelor package” at your neighbourhood strip joint may not be all you hoped and dreamed it would be.

Patrick Gallagher of Lansdale claims a dancer slid down a stripper pole and landed on him with such force that his bladder ruptured.

The incident occurred in late November 2010, when Gallagher visited the club on Castor Avenue near Balfour Street with friends to celebrate his impending marriage, said his attorney, Neil T. Murray.

His friends bought him the bachelor’s package, and the dancers brought him onstage, directing him to lie flat on his back beneath the pole, Murray said.

One dancer shimmied up the pole, and “from a great height, she launched herself down onto his abdomen,” Murray said.

The boom left the groom in such severe pain that he and his friends left. By the next morning, Gallagher was suffering so much he went to the hospital, where doctors diagnosed a ruptured bladder that required surgery to repair, Murray said. Murray said Gallagher also suffered nerve damage in his back and hip.

The lawsuit accuses the club of negligence and seeks at least $50,000 for medical costs, pain, humiliation and mental anguish.
